May 5 is Children’s day!



Today is Children’s day in Japan!

Children’s Day (Kodomo no Hi) is a Japanese national holiday which takes place annually on May 5, the fifth day of the fifth month, and is part of the longest weekend in Japan.

It is a day set aside to respect children’s personalities and to celebrate their happiness.

On this day, families raise the carp-shaped KOINOBORI flags with one carp for the father, one for the mother, and one carp for each child (traditionally each son).

Families also display a KINTARO doll usually riding on a large carp, and the traditional Japanese military helmet,KABUTO, due to their tradition as symbols of strength and vitality.
